This week, House impeachment investigators have held a round of new public hearings, which have provided the space for an array of condemning new details about President Donald Trump to come out. In the wake of those revelations, Trump took to Twitter this Friday morning with a desperate distraction attempt, mockingly suggesting that there’s “not much to talk about” but noting that he’d be appearing on the Friday morning edition of his longtime favored show Fox & Friends anyway. More than once when he’s appeared on the show, the broadcast has devolved into him ranting for minutes on end.
‘I will be interviewed on @foxandfriends this morning at 8:00 A.M. I know that there’s not much to talk about, but we will try to keep the conversation going. Enjoy! @SteveDoocy @ainsleyearhardt @kilmeade’
Down in the real world, outside the Fox News echo chamber, Trump is facing new revelations like that Ukraine actually inquired about aid he’d held up a whole month before previously known. That means there’s even more concrete evidence for Democrats’ assertions that Trump used that aid as leverage to try and get Ukraine to produce dirt on the Bidens.
Trump’s working to seem unfazed, though. He tweeted as though he is not facing many of his own credible allegations:
‘“Former FBI Employee Accused of Altering FISA Documents.” Hello, here we go! @foxandfriends’
He also tweeted in support of New York Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who’s made a name for herself in the public impeachment hearings via breaking procedural rules and complaining when she gets called out.
